Terra Andina Carménère Rapel Valley Reserva 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Made from the Carmenere grape, this decadent Chilean wine brandishes a violet-ruby robe along with the typical green olive, green pepper, and cigar ash aromatics associated with this varietal, but also showcases delicious notes of chocolate syrup, herbs, cherries, and blood oranges. Soft, round, and juicy on the palate, this punchy, fruit-forward wine is medium-bodied and ready to drink now. A virtual clarion call to all other Carmenere producers in South America, this rousing iteration from Terra Andina has set the bar for this varietal...90" Sonoma Wine Journal 1/10

Wonderful wine at a great price. This wine pairs perfectly with a variety of foods. It worked so well as a table wine that I am buying several cases of it for my upcoming wedding.

My Rating 89. This is a well balanced elegant fruity wine with hint of oak and complex ripe fruit. The nose is also well balanced and elegant. Price abaout $ 10.-

Carmenere is becoming my favorite inexpensive red, although this particular bottle was lacking note, thin in the mouth and a little too alcoholic on the finish.

One of the few wines I would buy a case of. Perfect balance.

The red wines start with the 2007 Carmenere Reserva, a pleasant, easy-going effort with aromas of coffee/mocha, blueberry, and plum. Ripe and round on the palate, it finishes with no hard edges. Drink it over the next three years. All of Terra Andina's wines are worthy of recommendation.

Bright, with a red fruit profile of raspberry and cherry layered with sweet fruitcake, spice and licorice notes. A bit obvious in style, but will have fans. Drink now.

The herbal notes beneath this winersquo;s ripe and opulent black fruit mark it as carmenegrave;re. Itrsquo;s big and intense, with a firm texture wrapped by chocolate tannins.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva is a bit more restrained. Blackcurrant and blackberry aromas lead to a slightly tannic wine with savory flavors and moderate depth. It could well evolve for 1-2 years but can be enjoyed now. The red wines start with the 2007 Carmenere Reserva, a pleasant, easy-going effort with aromas of coffee/mocha, blueberry, and plum. Ripe and round on the palate, it finishes with no hard edges. Drink it over the next three years. Ripe and juicy, with mint, sweet spice and tasty mixed berry fruit that pushes along a briary edge.
